We had more rain and a storm last night. I can't ever remember it raining so much in south Texas. However I do remember the drought of the 50's when it seemed it would never rain again. Being young it was scary to think what if it never rains again. Over twenty years ago we lived in the farm house on the ranch for fourteen months. It was dry then. The field in front of the house was plowed up and when the wind blew and it did a lot, the dirt came in under the doors and around the window unit air conditioners. Another time to really think about water and appreciate it. The last few months have brought us beautiful rain but with storms too. It's been a long time since I could walk the cattle tank dam and feed the turtles. It's been a long time since we could drive to the back forty to check the fences and see the wild turkeys. I keep thinking it will cut off like a faucet and we will be begging and praying for water. As for now the stock tank is full and running around. The dry creek bed is full of water. Everything is green and the cows are healthy.
